I do not see any reason for making psfonts.map default for dvi output.
This is one more eurocent for not reading config file when \pdfoutput=0
(have still in mind that pdfetex could be used as the default engine
for all formats in elegant, transparent for the BLU way).
And yes: we've been using pdftex.map for pdf output since many months
just to avoid any confusion with map files for dvips.
